    Hotmail issues solved!

    Hi there all.

    Received my TP on the weekend and have been playing with it ever since. My biggest bugbear was that I couldn't get my hotmail email syncing with the Prime. After much reading of these forums and playing around the following provides a what to do list.

    (1) Goto Settings > Accounts & Syncs > Add Account

    (2) Select Email from option list

    (3) Enter your hotmail address (xxxx@hotmail.com) and password (IMPORTANT - must be =< 14 characters)

    (4) Select manual setup, and on next screen select Exchange

    (5) On the next screen:

    (a) Domanin\Username must contain your email address (xxx@hotmail.com), I found that a "\" in front of your address (eg \xxx@hotmail.com) wasn't required.
    (b) Password will be okay and there is no need to change (REMEMBER =< 14 characters)
    (c) Server should be set to m.hotmail.com
    (d) Tick Use secure connection (SSL)
    (e) Untick Accept all SSL certificates

    Now when you press Next you should not get any error messages about invalid name or password (unless you actually entered an invalid name or password). There is still one more screen to go!!

    I think the 14 character limit on the password has been a problem for a number of perople, and seems strange that it would be limited to so few a number of characters given the ongoing reminders about proper securing of your on-line information.

    Hope this helps the next poor person who can't get their hotmail account to sync.

    I did attempt this route but still got the message "Invalid name or password" or similar, that is why I switched to the exchange option and persisted until no error message. Possibly the method you suggest also has a 14 or less chracter password restriction?

    In my case the solution for this problem was to install Hotmail (Microsoft + seven) from Play Store.
